J.R. Ward - Dark Lover

Black Dagger Brotherhood:

Book 1:
Dark Lover: Wrath (King of the Vampires aka. The Blind King) and Beth

Wrath is the reluctant King of the Vampires, for 300 years he has refused to ascend to the throne but instead fight in the never ending war against the Lessers.  Beth is the daughter of Darius one of the Brothers; although she has never met her father and was raised human. Darius asks Wrath as the most pure blooded vampire in existence to help his daughter through her transition to vampire, Wrath refuses.  When Darius is killed in a car bombing, Wrath decides to honor his last wish…

This book is a great beginning to the brotherhood, you meet all the brothers and get all the needed background to carry you through the series and it hooks you right off the bat! Wrath is a conflicted character; he doesn’t want to be king as he is a warrior at heart and knows he is needed in the front lines. Too many of the race is dying! He also feels like he is not worthy of the crown and his birth should not automatically mean that he be the one to rule. He wants a choice. Beth doesn’t even know that she is part vampire let alone who her father is. She is beyond disbelief when she does find out; I mean can you blame her? But she is sure of one thing… Her attraction to Wrath the giant warrior who shows up on her doorstep.  The attraction is sizzling from the moment these two meet. It’s pretty hot! I wish my love life was as steamy! Be warned.. You won’t be able to put this book down once you start!
